Summer vacation is almost over. A good way to avoid feeling depressed is to plan your next vacation. By knowing in advance the dates of the school holidays, it is easier to organize.
When you have children still in school, it is impossible to take advantage of the good deals of last minute trips.
On the other hand if we know the dates of the holidays, we can book in advance and therefore pay less.
The next break after the start of the school year is holiday All Saints.
They will start on October 22 and end on November 3. If the weather allows it, there may still be time to go and recharge your batteries by the sea.
Then comes Christmas, the last day of school will be December 17th and the start of the school year will be January 3rd. Enough to plan family vacations and have some time to recover from New Year’s Day.
For the winter and Easter holidays, it always depends on the area in which we are located.
The first to go on vacation will be the towns and villages of Zone A. Residents of Caen, Grenoble, Lyon, Clermont-Ferrand, Nancy-Metz, Toulouse, Rennes and Nantes will be able to plan their departures between February 11 and 27.
Then it will be the turn of zone B, from February 25 to March 12 to take over. The cities of Amiens, Aix-Marseille, Nice, Orléans-Tours, Besançon, Dijon, Lille, Limoge, Reims, Rouen, Poitiers and Strasbourg are concerned.
Then the last to benefit will be the cities in Zone C from Paris, Versailles, Créteil and Bordeaux, from February 18 to March 5.
Now you can organize your vacation in the mountains in peace.
For the last holiday session, at Easter, Zone A will be the first to take its holidays, from April 7 to 23. Then Zone C from April 14 to 30 and finally Zone B from April 21 to May 7.
The loop will be completed on July 5, the official date of the summer holidays of 2012.
You know everything about the 2011/2012 school holidays so to take advantage of the good deals, it’s now.
By knowing in advance the official vacations for each area and each area, it is easier to book, especially when there are promotions.
The earlier you book a train or plane, the more likely you are to get good prices. If you have children, it quickly becomes expensive to go on vacation so when you can benefit from discounts, you take advantage.
And for those who like to go out of the way, outside of vacations, to have even more attractive prices, it is good to know when the school holidays are.
